Merseyside's Youth Ambassadors volunteer to support, challenge and inform the work of the Police and Crime Commissioner and the wider criminal justice system.
This initiative aims to involve 10 enthusiastic, skilled young people more closely with the work of the Commissioner, helping to shape the way she engages with young people while giving them a greater voice in policing and community safety matters.
The role lasts for 12 months and is open to those aged between 16 and 24 who live, work or study in Merseyside.
Youth Ambassadors meet bi-monthly with the Police Commissioner and her team and assist in the creation and delivery of a new Youth Engagement Plan, which they will help to share with other young people by visiting schools, youth clubs and community groups across Merseyside. They are also expected to attend youth engagement events, inform campaigns aimed at young people and review the services offered to their peers.
The Youth Ambassador role replaced the Commissioner’s Youth Advisory Group which ran from 2013 until June 2019.
Applications to become a Merseyside Youth Ambassador for 2019/20 are now closed.
